On Wednesday night, Cyrus was the target of “swatting” — a prank in which an anonymous caller reports a heinous crime to authorities so a SWAT team will swarm an innocent person’s home — TMZ reported.
The caller, whom Los Angeles police are said to be tracking, told a 911 operator that Cyrus’ property had been invaded by a kidnapper and there had been a shooting.
At least a dozen officers and firefighters responded to the scene, according to L.A. Now. Luckily for all involved, it turned out to be a hoax.
Pranks! They’re so hilarious! But “pranks” are only news when they happen to famous celebrities. Did Miley eat at Chick-fil-A or something?
The more people do this without consequence, the more it will happen. One day someone is going to get hurt.
Yeah, but unless the victim is a famous celebrity, who cares? It’s Hollywood. We probably never would have heard of Charles Manson except for the fact that Sharon Tate was one of his victims.
